Events Calendar

  • Today the Knights of Columbus brunch will be in St. Mary’s Hall immediately following the 10 a.m. Divine Liturgy. We welcome members of the Knights & their friends from Muncie, IN.
  • The tools & dyes for decorating pysanky (Easter eggs) are in the hall. Today, until 2:30 p.m., everyone is invited to hone their skills in using the wax-resistance technique in creating colorful decorated eggs. A modest fee of $5 will help pay for the supplies. Come join us.
  • Friday’s Presanctified Liturgy starts at 7 p.m. Please come and participate in this inspiring service. It’s the last one this year. Stay afterwards to enjoy a good meal in St. Mary’s Hall.
  • Next Sunday, March 24th, is Palm Sunday. Following liturgy we will have a palm weaving demonstration while enjoying fellowship in St. Mary’s Hall. Learn how to decorate your home with the blessed palms.

We invite everyone to come and help make your own Easter basket items on that day. This is a great opportunity to learn some secret efficient techniques. The church will be open for prayer during the entire day. So plan to “stay & watch” with our crucified Lord on that Saturday even if you don’t plan to make anything in the kitchen.
